Welcome to Yoda Learning Blog

Hi, I’m Rishabh, co-founder at Yoda Learning. If you desire to become faster and better at office applications, (Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Excel VBA,.. ) but don’t know where to start, this page is for you.

For me and Yoda Learning community (I call them Yodas), we focus on helping each other with one goal – How can I get things done in the least possible time a.k.a. productivity.

We create video tutorials, blog posts on tips and tricks, webinars, infographs, eBook, mobile apps, productivity hacks to help Knowledge professionals become HERO at their office.

Check this video which gives a short intro about us. (And yes, my other co-founder Rishabh (Rishabh #2) is also in this video 🙂

What to Expect?

We assume that you’re opened Excel, PowerPoint or Word once in your life so we won’t take you through basics (like autosum or drawing a rectangle or changing font of the text)

What Yoda Learning is not?

Let’s dispel with some myths and set realistic expectations before we go any deeper.

Myth #1: I’m using such applications over a decade. I DON’T need lessons
We create content when we (or one of our students) face an issue.The content created is based on training 6000+ classroom and 10000+ online students. There are multiple instances when a user gets stuck in day-to-day work. We focus on how to optimize the task and complete the tasks in the least possible steps or what’s the industry best practice. If you’ve found a better way, leave it in comments. We’re a community – Learning from each other.

Myth #2: I don’t know basics. How can I learn MS Office tricks
Let me be clear – You are done with basics when you’ve created a simple file in Excel, PowerPoint or word. A lot of time, we brush up basics in a fast-forward way to bring you up to the speed. Sometimes, when I say tricks, it is not Rabbit-out-of-a-magic-hat moment. We basically uncover less-known features of the software with use-case so you can benefit when you face a problem next time.

Myth #3: Learning from Video tutorials is difficult. Do you have classroom courses?
We do conduct corporate training for bluechips (contact us). However, we strong recommend online courses if your goal is LEARNING from the BEST INSTRUCTORS. Apart from video tutorials, our course participants also have access to LIVE training (ask-me-anything webinars), online community where you post your questions/doubts and the community helps to solve that. Most of our content are crisp broken down into 5min video to make the most of your time.
